Chicago Businesses Need Not Shut Down Due to NATO Protests
IOCOM Offering Free Video Conferencing Solutions to Local Businesses
Chicago, IL, May 14, 2012: Many downtown Chicago based businesses have begun preparing for the 25th North Atlantic Treaty Organization (“NATO”) summit by increasing precautionary security measures due to rumors of imminent protests. While nobody can predict the exact degree and severity of business disruption caused by traffic, marches, sit-ins, train delays and other interference, many businesses are contemplating shutting down completely for the duration of the summit.
To ensure organizations can go about business as usual and avoid potential security risk, Chicago-based IOCOM is offering all local businesses free licenses to Visimeet, their video conferencing & collaboration software, so employees can work from home but easily meet and collaborate as if they were in the office.
